Seeing the future!

An artist’s conception of a proposed ultra-modern 50,000 seat stadium to be constructed in downtown St. Louis to house both the baseball and football Cardinals…this was designed and featured in an NFL type magazine in early 1962…take a look..how close do you think it came to what eventually went up?? Tell ya this…the proposed name never got off the drawing board…initially it was to be called Riverfront Stadium…well, Gussie was having none of that, and the folks in Cincinnati picked up on that leftover idea!
